Herbert Hoover Boys & Girls Club
Since 1967, Herbert Hoover Boys & Girls Club (HHBGC) has been providing a safe place for children to learn and grow. Our mission is to inspire and enable youth ages 6 to 18 to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.
The Club is open during hours that kids are most likely to need a safe place to go -- after school, on Saturday and extended hours during the summer. Nationally recognized programs help youth succeed in school, stay healthy, pursue interests in arts and sports, and explore career choices.
Our Core Programs are Character and Leadership Development, Education and Career Development, Health and Life Skills, The Arts, and Sports, Fitness and Recreation.
The Club is a chartered member of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, which is found in 4,000 communities and serves 4.6 million youngsters annually. The Chronicle of Philanthropy recently ranked Boys & Girls Clubs of America as the nation’s top youth organization for the eleventh consecutive year and 12th among all non-profit organizations. In February 2008, HHBGC received a four-star rating from Charity Navigator, one of only 21 organizations in Missouri to receive that rating. Herbert Hoover Boys & Girls Club is part of a proud tradition of service to our nations’ youth that promotes character and leadership, community and civic involvement, and safety and well-being.
